War Veterans Minister Tomo Medved said on Tuesday that 20 years after the Homeland War Serbia was still not contributing enough to the finding of the bodies of the war missing and that Croatia was still looking for 1,990 missing persons.
We cannot be satisfied with Serbia's attitude, Medved said in Vukovar, where he laid a wreath and lit a candle at the Homeland War Victims Memorial Cemetery on the occasion of International Day of the Disappeared.
That is one of the issues and obligations which Serbia undertook in its pre-accession agreement with the European Union and we urge Serbia to do its best in that regard, the minister said.
He said Croatia had many possibilities to set conditions so that Serbia complied with what it signed to in that agreement. "We consider the issue of missing persons, alongside putting out of force the law on so-called jurisdiction, to be a priority and Croatia will certainly do its best to exert pressure on Serbia to participate actively."
